My research team has been expanding knowledge about natural and human-made disasters, including perceived threat and coping self-efficacy, and the impact of those variables on individuals' emergency preparedness, health, and mental health. We are now incorporating COVID (and pandemics) into our disaster research and have completed data collection in one study (with college students) and are starting another (a longitudinal study with three waves with US adults). Both studies include disaster and COVID measures. My research is interdisciplinary and has implications for both our local community and society at large. In addition, our work on predictors of emergency preparedness (e.g., social norms and self-efficacy) was covered by several media outlets at the beginning of the pandemic. 2. Another example of the reach of our research: during this annual review period (April 2021-December 2021), my research contributions on researchgate.net were the "most read" for 10 weeks. Most of our faculty members are on that site . 3. Assessments which I have created or helped to develop are routinely requested nationally and internationally by clinicians and researchers, including the following: The Teacher-Child Rating Scale (teacher ratings of child adjustment), the Child Rating Scale (child self-reports of adjustment) The Parent Opinion Questionnaire (child maltreatment), and the Child Self-Control Rating Scale (child self-reports of adjustment). In addition, I have a history of research focused on school interventions with children, both self-management and peer-based, in addition to meta-analyses of peer-tutoring interventions.
